Cylindrical Bushes PAP


Main function:

  • Absorbing and transferring radical forces
  • Fixing moving components to each other
  • Ensuring guidance accuracy with radial and axial movements over the entire service life 

KS PERMAGLIDE® Cylindrical bushes PAP are available in two material groups

  • Material group P1 for maintenance-free, dry-running applications
  • Material group P2 for low-maintenance, lubricated applications

Basic advantages of cylindrical bushes from the P1 or P2 group:

  • low installation space requirements
  • extremely easy assembly
  • low friction value
  • good chemical resistance

When is it best to use P1 bushes?

  • if lubrication (oil, grease) is not possible or not permitted
  • for operating temperatures between -200°C and 280°C
  • for low to medium sliding speeds, depending on the type of material max. 0.8m/s to max. 2m/s
  • if standard bearing clearance is sufficient for the application

When is it best to use P2 bushes?

  • where lubrication (oil, grease) is used
  • where higher sliding speeds (up to 3.3m/s) are required
  • for increased impact load or edge loading
  • where a lower bearing clearance is required (not P20 and P200)


Please comply with the temperature range of -40°C to 110°C.
